The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
~ Howard Phillips Lovecraft

Summary

The Cthulhu Mythos (Originally referred to as Yog-Sothothery) refers to a collection of artificial mythology created by H. P. Lovecraft. Inside of it, all of existence was created by a mindless, questionable omnipotent being named Azathoth who sleeps at the center of creation. The most notable character from the series is Cthulhu, and the most notable story is "The Call of Cthulhu".

Please note, that everything that is not made by H. P. Lovecraft or his close friends during his life is considered non-canon for the purposes of this wiki, even though the Cthulhu Mythos is now public domain. Profiles on this wiki use only the primary canon as opposed to the expanded Mythos, and will primarily use the works of Lovecraft himself, along with occasionally contributions to the Mythos from close friends, such as Frank Belknap Long and Clark Ashton Smith.

Power of the Verse

The Cthulhu Mythos verse is one of the most powerful franchises out there, as it has an infinite number of Outerversal beings and a potentially omnipotent being. It also has many diverse, yet devastating abilities, including Reality Warping, Time Manipulation, Mind attacks, and numerous others. Even the verse's low tiers, while still infinitely less powerful than the Outer Gods, still have god-like abilities in the eyes of a mortal.
